It’s a simple question. There are some answers that seem clear cut, but some are not.
So I ask who or what is worth dying for?
Your country? We honour soldiers who give their lives in military service. But what about an Iraqi soldier who died in the service of Iraq?
Your children? Most parents would die for their children. What about someone else’s children? What if they are obnoxious little brats?
Your God? There are two aspects of this - dying because you refuse to renounce your belief, and dying in the furtherance of that same belief. What about suicide bombers? Are some forms of matyrdom acceptable and others not?
A stranger? There are people who risk their lives every day in order to save others. Firefighters spring most readily to mind. Does it make a difference whether they are good or evil? What if you don’t know?
Your friends? The truth? An opinion? A belief?
What is worth dying for? Where is the line between an honourable and courageous act and madness of fanatacism?
